What do you trade (market/timeframes)?
I got started in Forex mostly due to the low initial capital required. I am not a fan of demo accounts and thought that would be the best way to learn to trade. I eventually started to enjoy the nature of FX and trade it to this day. I diversify with both day and swing trading. I am looking at other markets to trade outside of currencies. Given the success some have had with TY, I may take a look at that. I keep my focus on four currency pairs… GBPJPY, GBPUSD, EURUSD, EURJPY.
Where are you from? Where do you currently live?
Toronto, Canada is where I am from and currently live. However, the call of the west coast is mighty tempting. That is the great thing about being a trader…you can live virtually anywhere you choose.
Why did you become a trader?
There is much more to life than 9-5, Mon-Fri, weekends off and a few weeks vacation every year. I have many outside interests that I want to stay a part of and trading allows me to do that. Last year it really paid off as my wife and I had a baby. We both get to stay home and watch her grow. Now that is living. If you keep in mind trading is a business and take the education seriously (including working on your psyche), it is a realistic target that people can have.
How did you become a SST (Seven Summits Trader) coach? What inspired you to get involved?
Anybody read ‘The Secret’? I bought the trading system in October of 2008. I was impressed with the professionalism of the company and what I felt was a real desire to help traders succeed. Trading can really be the road to a better life and the NetPicks company not only understands that, but aims to help traders reach that goal. Who would not want to be a part of that AND contribute to that goal? Karma can be a blessing. I kept in the back of my mind that I wanted to be a part of the company. I decided to open a blog highlighting real money trades I had taken to not only help upstart traders, but also for those traders unaware of the system altogether. I contributed in the FX Live! training room with Russell Rice and out of the blue, Russell emailed me and the rest… is history.
